Sculptural form turned from Australian Banskia pod and African Blackwood

September 7, 2021

Banksia pods [Banksia grandis] originate from southwestern Australia. They aren’t related to pine cones and don’t come from trees, but rather large Banksia shrubs. They have their own unique and marvelous form and texture, creating highly interesting design possibilities. They make for excellent sculptural forms, especially when complemented—as here—with African Blackwood base and finial.
